JP Duminy offers his opinion on Suryakumar Yadav's participation in the playing XI before the Nagpur Test for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.

JP Duminy believes that Suryakumar Yadav should be considered for the selection if India adopts an aggressive mentality given his recent white-ball cricket performance.
Team India will be without Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant for the first Test as the Border Gavaskar Trophy preparations are in full swing. This causes them to rethink their middle order. Suryakumar Yadav’s availability and potential inclusion in the team for his first Test have been hot topics of discussion.

JP Duminy, a former South African all-rounder, has also expressed an opinion on whether Suryakumar Yadav ought to be included in the starting lineup. He has said that Suryakumar is one of India’s most interesting batters and that if they want to play with an aggressive attitude in this series, he should bat.

The 32-year-selection old’s to the Test team is a hotly contested issue. Fitting Suryakumar into the lineup will be a challenge for the team given the absence of Rishabh Pant and the return of KL Rahul to the squad. As Rahul will bat lower in the order, Shubman Gill is anticipated to open the batting alongside Rohit Sharma. Surya’s inclusion in the lineup is uncertain at this point.

JP Duminy spoke on Suryakumar Yadav during a press conference organised by SA20, adding, “Currently, Suryakumar Yadav is perhaps one of India’s most intriguing players. As a nation, you need to decide what kind of cricket you want to play in light of the direction that Test cricket is taking. If that is the case, I believe he becomes a possibility “according to Sportskeeda.

JP Duminy also discussed Shubman Gill’s ascent to the position of opener across all three forms. The 23-year-old has recently been in outstanding form and might be very important for India in the opening Test match against Australia in Nagpur.

In reference to Gill, Duminy stated, “What a white-ball series Shubman Gill has had. He has undoubtedly made a case for all three formats, and he possesses the skills and disposition necessary to succeed in each. I’m not sure if there is a vacancy for him right now or if he gets an opportunity. but most definitely very soon.”
